Finding your life’s purpose – A film by Eckhart Tolle

Finding your life purpose

 

 

 

 

 

BOOK NOW

Café Roux and Exploring Consciousness bring you Films to inspire living.
Join us for an enlightening evening….pre-book your tickets online and sit back and watch an inspiring film and stay for a discussion thereafter. The movie will begin at 6pm sharp. Dinner / Coffee / Drinks available afterwards for you to continue with the discussion.

If you’ve been searching for your true purpose in life, Eckhart Tolle has some straightforward advice: stop struggling. For the primary purpose of every human being is simply to be: fully engaged in this moment, and aligned with the natural flow of reality itself.

On Finding Your Life’s Purpose, the bestselling author of A New Earth invites you to discover the twofold intention of our human incarnation: to free yourself from the prison of “thought-based reality,” and to express in your own way the grand vision that universal consciousness has for your life.

Finding Your Life’s Purpose brings you into the vibrant presence of this sublime teacher, as he offers his one-of-a-kind guidance about:

  • The beauty of effortless being, and how to awaken to it
  • Tapping the vast power and intelligence of stillness
  • How to embrace the space rather than the form of this moment
  • Unfolding your purpose through actions in alignment with the timeless present
  • How to see the deeper essence of another human being

“You are the consciousness that illuminates the world. Know yourself as that—that’s what life wants with you,” teaches Eckhart Tolle.

Watershed – structured around singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Craig Hinds who has always felt he is a man with a positive message to convey and after teaching high school for two years while playing his own material out in smaller venues Craig decided to take the opportunity to form a band and make his voice and songs heard across the world.

Watershed’s travels have led them to perform at the prestigious South by South West Music festival in Austin Texas and Canadian Music week to various dates across Europe where their music is particularly well received in Germany, Austria and Switzerland after a radio DJ on holiday in South Africa heard “Indigo Girl” and thought it would enchant his listeners. He was absolutely right. The play listing of the song on the local German station quickly built momentum and lead to them to be picked up by EMI Germany who released “In The Meantime” and every album & single since.

Working with various producer’s the band had the opportunity to hone all the facets that make up a great album and the result is their finest work to date. The new album “Watch the Rain” tips the hat to the new-age country sound while still remaining grounded in the cultured acoustic rock that Watershed is known and loved for and the first single off the album “Magical Energy” is already building momentum on the local South African charts.  While the term Watershed is universally used to describe a turning point, a lesser known use is in broadcasting field where it is used to describe the transition time when adult content can be shown and maybe now that’s a better fit for a band that has matured and realised the strength and depth of their sound and trusted in their process and abilities.  Watershed are 15 years in the making and nowhere near ready to stop.

BOOK NOW

Eva Marie Cassidy was an American singer known for her interpretations of Jazz and Blues.   She was practically unknown outside her hometown, until her posthumous recognition…  

Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Fields of Gold and Songbird were but a few of the songs she delivered so beautifully, until her passing in 1996.  

Tanja Storm is a multi-talented and skilled vocalist, instrumentalist and musical director. She released her debut album in 2009, with her first music video, “Tevergeefs”,  being broadcast on KykNet. Recently returning to a recording studio after years of successful projects with various cover bands and theatre work, numerous of her latest singles have hit number 1 on our local SA music charts. Her much anticipated second music video, Môreson”, was also broadcast on KykNet and her new album was released in July 2019. She has shared stages with some of SA’s top artists and now she pays tribute to Eva Cassidy.

The Eva Cassidy Story is a heart-tugging tribute and live concert experience that journeys through Eva’s incredible catalogue of work. This show features all of Eva’s greatest hits performed by the diverse Tanja Storm.

Sit back and allow yourself to be transported back in time on this nostalgic journey.

Reviews:

“A very special, multi-faceted and talented young lady who is driven by a love for what she does -and it shows. She also has a magnificent voice and knows how to use it whether rocking flat out or crooning a gentle balled. Miss her and miss out!” – Norman Carless

“Well presented and put together. Trio worked well together with humour coming through. Eva Cassidy is very hard to emulate as she had such an unique range and style.”

“It was the first time that I listened to Tanja Storm – and what a pleasure it was, especially her renditions of Eva Cassidy’s wonderful type of singing. Also, her simultaneous accompaniment on the piano was top-class. I also am a pianist of sorts and can assure you that she could have embarked on a career relying solely on her pianist skill – and to accompany your own singing is no mean achievement.”

BOOK NOW

After a very successful 6 week run at GrandWest’s Roxy Revue Bar, Andre returns to the Cape for an evening of fun and laughter at Café’ Roux, Noordhoek. He has done this so that his followers from the “Deep” south of the Cape Peninsula, that didn’t make the “Trek” can now see him in their own neighbourhood!

Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist celebrates a record breaking 26 years on stage as South Africa’s very own convener of the strange, weird and wonderful. Andre discovered his hypnotic calling after watching a performance of the late Max Collie in action. 

Having already studied drama, teaching and with a background in psychology, Andre immediately became hooked at the promise of being able to entertain people on stage with his hilarious hypnotic skills and that is exactly what he has been doing for the past 26 years.

No two shows are ever the same as the shows strength lies in the fact that every night’s volunteers are completely different, leading to a diverse hilarious action-packed evening performance. With every person reacting differently to Andre’s suggestion, not even Andre knows what to expect when he steps up on stage.

Andre does, however, promise not to disappoint and the audience can expect an hour and a half of side splitting hilarious Hypnotic entertainment from their very own community as Andre takes to the stage.

At the end of the day the strength of the show lies on the volunteers of the evening and that is what makes Andre’s show such a feel good, funny, hilarious evening’s entertainment. It truly the only show in the country that can claim that it makes stars of your friends and family.

We’re asking for your support!

The Café Roux quiz evening, in support of Volunteer Wildfire Services South Peninsula Firebase is taking place in Noordhoek on the 21st of August. .

Wildfires are a part of life in the Western Cape and every fire season, the VWS assists agencies in the Cape Peninsula, the Overberg, the Cape Winelands and as far afield as the Cedarberg, stretching resources to the limit.


With the exception of a full-time employed general manager, the VWS is staffed, run and managed by committed people who all have day jobs. Many of the VWS’ deployments are largely at night, providing welcome relief for day-time fire crews, but once a VWS crew comes off the line, it’s back to base, home for a shower and maybe an hour or so of sleep, before heading for a full day at work or in the lecture hall.


For the VWS to do its work, we need money, which makes fund-raising a critical focus when members are off the line. A registered non-profit organisation, the VWS relies on the support of the communities it serves, to be able to do what it does best: fight wildland fires.
The VWS South Peninsula fire base is setting up shop in Noordhoek, and Café Roux is helping by hosting a quiz evening, the proceeds of which will be donated to the VWS to help fund setup and operational costs at the new base.


Join us for an evening of great Café Roux food, fun and entertainment, interspersed with the intriguing tale of how the VWS came into being, and an engaging general knowledge quiz during which you can impress your friends and family, while making a meaningful contribution to a vital community organisation. Great food, great fun, great cause. See you there.
